The "R.V." : The latest in our quest for the ultimate "Domesticated" design. The RV is exactly as its name implies…A "Recreational Vehicle". Designed for extracting maximum fun with minimum effort and ease of exploitation of your precious free time…. If you want to cruise the coast in style and comfort, surf in a resplendent state of wave catching excess and bliss, then the R.V. is for you. The design stems from a blend of the Bottom Feeder/Couch Potato/LayZboy genre. Featuring the same "tip to tip" vee bottom as its predecessors. The vee negates the substantial volume and allows easy rail to rail transitions on wide, thick boards with a lot of surface area. Noticeable updates include the double wing flyers added to the tail, to reduce surface area and increase bite and precision in turns. The reduced surface area adds confidence of not sliding out in hard snaps, and carves. The nose outline has also been tweaked to reduce some are in the forward 12-18" of the board, but without reducing drive down the line or paddle ability. The nose feels like it "comes around" quicker in turns and looks …and feels, like more of a performance design. We also shallowed the vee up front (for more trim speed and instant burst in the take off) and actually deepened the vee under the rear foot. We did this for a more solid and forgiving…"controlled" feel in turns and carves.
